    So I won an auction for a tin of Red Rapparee based on a photo. It occurred to me after the fact that the description said nothing about the tin being old or aged. It doesn't have the Rattray's sigil with the banners and leaves and urn and smoking guy that I'm used to though; it's just green with a silhouette of an oriental looking city over yellow and says Rattray's Red Rapparee Tobacco in red. Anyone know if this is specifically an older tin, at least 5 or 6 years, to make me feel better about the expense? Thanks

    If no one comes up with the answer by tomorrow night, I'll dig through my stuff - I know I have Rattrays tin aging info and I'm pretty sure I know where it is. I just won't be home until tomorrow night to dig it up.

    Is it a 100 gram tin?

    Thanks for the link; I won't be able to check it out until the tin actually arrives, but that should help.
